“Fantastic stunning place to eat”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We didn't stay here, we only went here for a meal and it was by far the best meal of our entire holiday in Rarotonga. The view and setting is absolutely breath taking and the food was the best meal we had for the cheapest 'dine out' price all holiday. The staff are lovely too. A must-go-to for any one visiting Raro.

“Great for Lunch - I'd skip dinner...”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

This place is beautiful. We stayed here and loved it. Lovely island fries and simple food (like beef burrito). In my opinion the 'fine dining' food is pretty terrible. I had a steak and it was tough, underseasoned and came with soggy tasteless potatoes. At $38 it was not cheap considering if I had cooked it myself it would have been 10 times better...

“Best lunch of our trip”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We did not stay here but popped in for lunch. As per usual throughout Raro, the views are spectacular, and as this is a high class boutique hotel, the setting and set up is as expected. Service was standard CI, efficient and friendly, with the customary fa'afafine, but all good fun.
Simply, this was the best meal we had on Raro, all 5 of us agreeing on this point. The front desk also gave a tour of the establishment and the variety of the rooms, excellent marketing.
